Short walk down a car-wide road to a staircase to the bottom of the falls.

Lovely wooded trail with a great view of mount hood at the top. We encountered one other couple. Many downed trees (we counted 22 in this segment) were a fun hurdle but could be a nuisance. We did an out and back from the Pacific Crest Trailhead at Lolo Pass, Oregon, but only recorded the return. Portapotty, no other facilities. No parking lot but space to pull your car off the road.

Not really a hiking trail, but more of a slipped and stair walk to a beautiful waterfall...swam and jumped in - was a little tough for the younger ones to get down with the rock but we did it with 4,6, and 9 year old so not horrible. Water was cold but refreshing.

HikingGreat!

If you want to hike, don't drive all the way to the falls. Rather, park very early at the crossroad. Amazing for swimming.

A nice spot to get out and stretch your legs for a quick walk to a swimming hole! The waterfall is usually dried up a lot during late summer months, but still very beautiful. Worth it for sure.

Not so much of a "hike" as a short walk on a gravel road to a pretty waterfall and swimming hole. Lovely on a hot day! As others have mentioned, it's very popular so hard to find a quiet moment to enjoy/photo.

Not really a trail, a short walk to a beautiful waterfall. Tea coloured water is swimmable, but I would recommend water shoes (lots of smooth rocks, more easily navigated with footwear!). The road out to the parking area is very long and winded, but it would be very difficult to get confused or lost as it is well signed and the parking area is at the very end.

It was okay but the road to it was insanely bendy and difficult to navigate.

this while not a hiking trail this was a huge part of my childhood every year (many times) going to swim at Mary Ann falls. in good weather it's a load of fun. easy walk down from the parking lot and stairs right down to just about near the water.
